in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. >> ambassador rice blaming the killings on that hateful anti-muslim video. that turned out to be wrong. some question senator mccain is asking that he might get answers to this. as for holding up ms. rice's potential nomination as secretary of state over this, well, keep in mind, some key people in washington have trip tripped up on false intelligence in the past. people like condoleeza rice. who as national security adviser back in 2003, made the case for war in iraq, insisting that saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. >> it is time to stop the deceit and time to stop trying to deceive the world, and to offer up his weapons of mass destruction so that he can be disarmed. the overwhelming bulk of the evidence there, not about a data point here or a data point there, but about what saddam hussein was doing, was that he had weapons of mass destruction. >> right
to cairo where she's meeting with the egyptian president mursi. mrs. clinton making it clear that she is not interested in a quick fix in gaza. >> the goal must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability, and advances the security and legitimate aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. >> cnn reporters flanking the middle east today to bring you the most comprehensive coverage of the crisis in gaza and in jerusalem and in israel. ben wedeman is in gaza city. frederick pleitgen is in ashkelon city. we begin with sara sidner at the scene of that bus explosion that happened just a little while ago in tel aviv. sara first of all describe for me how that looks right now. >> what has happened right now is the cleanup is under way. there are still tape up around the scene. we're very close to the defense department building, and the military headquarters, this is a bus that the number 61 bus, we know that it exploded, glass all around the bus was blown out. however the blast was not strong enough to knock out the ability for the bus to operate. and so we saw literally the b
-- that anti-islamic video that sparked the riots in cairo. that's the confusion, that film or a terrorist attack? they got 20 intelligence reports blaming the film riot in cairo. but, this is critical, those reports were disproved over time. but disproved after petraeus made his initial presentation to congress. so david petraeus believes there's a lot of confusion and a lot of misrepresentation of what he originally told congress when he briefed them initially after the attacks. he wants to go up there tomorrow, sort it all out. he will also say he had his own talking points separate from u.n. ambassador susan rice. that came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking point. so he wants to get all this sorted out. he believes it was the al qaeda sympathizer group ansar al sharia that was responsible for the attacks. >> so the question, barbara, is he is convinced that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi had nothing, nothing to do with that anti-muslim video that'd been posted on youtube, that this was a terrorist attack by this al qaeda affiliated organiz
their children is our blood too. >> now to cairo and reza sayah, he joins me now. egypt condemns the israeli attacks, but so far says it will not break a long-standing agreement with israel. so what kind of bind is egyptian president morsi in over this conflict? >> reporter: well, he certainly has to walk a tight rope and mohamed morsi, the egyptian president is learning how quickly how difficult it is to be the president of egypt. here is why the situation is packed with so much drama and intrigue. for more than 30 years, mohamed morsi, a member of the muslim brotherhood and the movement were on the outside to israeli/palestinian conflict. they didn't have much of a role under the mubarak regime. then came the revolution, in came the muslim brotherhood, very influential in this current government, with the promise that they're going to change things, that they're no longer going to tolerate and put up with israeli aggression and oppression of the palestinians, and this is the promise that they have made so far. they have delivered a lot of rhetoric, condenecticudemnation seems like that's a
spontaneously inspired by the protests at the u.s. embassy in cairo involved into a direct assault. i mean it's very consistent. so doesn't all of that point and i agree with you 150%, everybody, you know, wants to understand exactly what happened. but doesn't this seem to vindicate her role when if the cia talking points that were given to susan rice? >> again, soledad, not to me. and i think that most people who are watching this, it is -- it is an attempt, but it falls way short of answering the questions i think that the american people have. and that's what this is really about. so whether it's general petraeus, susan rice, or anyone in the administration, i mean, this is a -- this is an issue of leadership. this is something that the president i think needs to come to the american people and be very straightforward about what happens, why it is that statements were made the way they were at the beginning, why it is that they are changing now, and that -- that as commander in chief, as the president of the united states, this is an opportunity for him to look the american people in the e
filled cairo's tahrir square. they're angry over what they see as the new egyptian president's power grab, that anger intensifying now. after a mostly islamist assembly rushed to pass a draft constitution early this morning. the document will be presented to president mohamed morsi tomorrow for his signature. egyptians will vote on the draft in two weeks. >>> wow. in syria, as the internet goes dark, a is the u.s. closer to arming the rebels and is time out for bashar al assad? jim clancy is next. the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xare
understand there will be big demonstrations in cairo today. what are the risks right mow of egypt being drawn in fourth this conflict? >> the chances are actually fairly small. egypt has enough problems with it is with fighting militants next to gaza. egypt says it still respects the camp david peace accord signed with israel back in the late 1970s. obviously, we can expect egyptian politicians and leaders to make as much political hay as possible over this gaza violence, but it's highly unlikely that egypt has really the wherewithal or desire to get sucked into that conflict. i know from speaking to many egyptians, they don't have an appetite for it. they may sympathize with the people of gaza, but that sympathy does not extend to an eagerness or willingness to engage or become involved militarily in that conflict. >> all right, ben. in jerusalem this morning. thanks. >>> coming up later, soledad will be speaking to israel's deputy foreign minister. that's in our 7:00 hour. >>> here at home, president obama will have the four top leaders of congress over to the white house today to begin tal
